A business leadership podcast series by Cory Miller and Matt Danner, sharing their experiences and lessons of leading and growing their team and business at iThemes, one of the oldest commercial products businesses in WordPress, which now powers over 25% of the web. We’ve learned a lot about leading and managing 25+ people as well as growing a business, often the hard, painful, costly way. Prior to starting iThemes, Cory was a journalist, having “managed” only a part-time person before starting iThemes. Matt was a college student when he started at iThemes. Now, after 8+ years of building an awesome team and business, we want to share the stories, lessons, values, beliefs, philosophies, tools and experiences we’ve gleaned over the years to help you learn and grow … from each of our unique and different perspectives.
